Asked By 80 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

When I try installing the Windows SDK in the system, I stuck up with this error message. I tried repeatedly but I cannot skip this step. What I have to do now to get rid of this error message? I do not want to continue this setup without required components. Please do help me experts to solve this problem. Thanks in advance. 

Windows components cannot be installed

Some Windows SDK components require the .NET Framework 4, which Setup cannot detect on this computer. If you continue with Setup, these components will not be installed. If you want to install these components, click Cancel, then install the .NET Framework 4 from and them return Setup.

Click OK to continue.

.NET Framework is the main core system of all Microsoft products. It is used by all Microsoft software, from Windows itself to every small programs that are being developed by Microsoft. Windows SDK is such a development kit that allows developers create their software for Windows platform. It is also developed using .NET Framework and so requires to the runtime.

Programs that are being developed using .NET Framework requires .NET Framework runtime that allows the programs to have the necessary components to have the right environment to run perfectly. Your PC doesn’t contain the package so you’re unable to install Windows SDK.

Download and install .NET Framework 4.5.2. This is the latest .NET Framework version that will cover all the older .NET Framework versions. After installing this component, run the installation of Windows SDK. It should run perfectly.
